The main façade is constructed in locally quarried limestone accentuated with granite lintels and sills.
The entrance doorway is framed in granite with a panelled door which leads into the impressive Entrance Hall which exudes a scale of grandeur worthy of the principal entrance to this home.
The formal wood panelled dining room and lounge both benefit from open fires. The oak kitchen has been handmade with carrara marble worktops with inset sink and built in dishwasher. The Breakfast room features an inglenook fireplace with original oven (not in use) and there is also a refitted downstairs WC.
